A Matcha Made In Heaven? There’s a brand new green tea matcha shop that opened in Orlando recently- Matcha Cafe Maiko Orlando in Mills 50 (639 N Mills Ave, Orlando, FL 32803) featuring Authentic Japanese Matcha drinks and desserts.
The drinks and desserts at Matcha Cafe Maiko are made only with Organic Ceremonial Grade Matcha from Uji in Kyoto, Japan. Uji is a place in the southern part of Kyoto and is renowned for making topnotch, highly nutritious matcha.
The area is ideal as there is plenty of mist, which protects against frost from degrading product quality.
Overall, I thought the desserts I tried were excellent, without being too sweet – took me right back to my time in Japan where literally every restaurant had green tea served – like water – at every meal.
Try them out soon!
Uji Kintoki – Shaved ice with matcha/hojicha syrup, homemade adzuki beans, shiratama, and condensed milk for that very traditional taste
Maiko Special – Soft serve matcha ice cream along with matcha chiffon, chestnuts, and shiratama mochi
